Westinghouse Electric Company has placed an order for structural supports and assemblies to be used at the Vogtle and VC Summer AP1000 projects in the Southern US.
Graham Corporation, a designer and manufacturer of equipment for the oil, petrochemical and power industries, announced that the orders for four US AP1000 projects had been placed with its subsidiary Energy Steel & Supply Co. Delivery of the components will span fiscal years 2013, 2014 and 2015, Graham said.
The exact value of the orders has not been disclosed, however according to Graham the total value of the two orders from Westinghouse and an order for a steam service condenser for a US biomass facility is $ 7 million.
Graham’s president and CEO James R. Lines said that Energy Steel hopes to win further orders from Westinghouse and future plans include expanding the company’s reach into new nuclear construction.
“While considerable procurement has been completed by Westinghouse for its two nuclear power plant projects, there are additional equipment requirements on which Energy Steel is bidding and we hope to be in a position to win. Moreover, while the pace is unclear, there are more nuclear energy facilities planned for construction in the U.S. over the next two decades,” he said.
